Happy Holidays


MIM this week with Danielle, has us 
splattering our projects, something I already love to do!
It's always great to learn a few of the designer's special
tricks, and Dani has plenty to share!



I couldn't wait to break open Winter Woods, a new set with beautiful bold winter birds.
White frost splatter created with: Mister Huey's Color Mist Shine. 
Sentiment from Botanical Blocks 3.
Twinkling H2O's watercolors
Vintage Linens Paper Collection
Sequins & Beads: WMS Vanilla Frost


Also playing along at:


edited to add my bird card to 
Merry Monday, where the theme is Birds


Yesterday we kicked off the holidays with a trip to the Moscow Ballet's 
traveling production of the Nutcracker.
Ron and I took our Analise and Reagan, ages 11 & 10.
It was magical!


Part of the package tickets were nutcracker dolls with the
event & date engraved on the bottom.


Grandpa snapped these pix with an iPhone, not bad for a phone!
If the production comes to your town, don't miss it!
The sets, costumes and performers were wonderful!
